Question: Is there any way in Google Analytics to mark dates (say the date you introduced a change in website)
Answer: Not that I know of; at least not directly. What you can do is use the DATE FILTER at the top right of each screen to FILTER your data. So if you note that you made a sweeping change to your website on Feb 1, 2010, then you can use this date filter to filter your results either before or after that date.
In that way, you can see the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ affect of changes to your website, and your SEO strategy.
